XIV OBSERVATION AND DEDUCTION

This should be an active session incorporating a wide range of observation and sense training games and practices, many of which will be found in PATROL BOOKS No. 9. Projects should have a good deal of fun content and, where possible, should include movement and activity.

Suggested activities :

1. " Mobile Kim " articles on a string drawn fairly briskly across the field of observation.

.1 2. " Oral Kim " send Patrols out to hide near a given point and listen to a pair of crooks planning a crime, then returning to prepare brief reports.

3. " Spot the letter " a number of (apparently) identical letters are prepared, each with an identifying number. Only two are actually the same in every particular.

4. " Dirty Work at the Crossroads "~Patrols witness the planning and actual execution of a hold up by two footpads. The crime differs in a number of respects from the plot, and when it is over, Patrols are. asked to prepare a list of the discrepancies.

5. " Tune Tapping " Patrols in their own Corners. One Scout in turn from each Patrol goes to the centre, where the name of a well known song is given. Scouts return and tap out the rhythm for their own Patrols, who burst into song as soon as they have got it.
